    New Peterson contract details (Cleared up space for 2011)

    Via Twitter:

    @TomPelissero:

    #Vikings HB Adrian Peterson's 2011 base salary dropped to $8.25 million under his new contract to facilitate added cap space from his bonus.

    Peterson's base in 2012 will be $8 million. It jumps to $11.25 million in 2013 and $11.75 million in 2014.
    -----------------------------------------------------------------

    So we were at $4.5M in cap space before the restructure. This new development would put us somewhere around $6.5M? And it goes even lower for next year. It looks like our front office might be setting up a big move.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    So it's basically a three year contract then? I can't imagine paying him 13+ million for the remaining contract years. He'll have to renegotiate or get cut/traded.

    Yeah that is the problem with backloaded contracts. He will get too expensive to keep and will consume too much cap space and we will end up cutting or trading him anyway.

    At that point, I'm sure he would just re-negotiate. Assuming that his production will have gone down that much. He will want to retire here. Unless he won't give it up like Emmitt Smith. But I seriously doubt that.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.
